Dr. Phil: Michelle Gets Two and a Half Years In Prison
After the story of her crime hit the news, her image was ruined. Whereas she was famous for being a model before, now she was only famous because of her crime, which landed her in prison for two and a half years. Michelle was baffled at the sentence, because she returned the baby and turned herself in. Why didn’t that count for anything? She admits to being wrong for not thinking about the feelings of the baby’s parents, but she still thinks she should have gotten a lesser sentence.
Dr. Phil Doesn’t Think Michelle Is Being Real
Dr. Phil told Michelle that she needs to wake up and get real about what she has done. Michelle is still making a lot of excuses for what she did. For instance, she said that she was forced to fake having a child, thought her crime wasn’t all that bad compared to other crimes and even went so far as to say that it was partially the parents’ fault for letting her walk into another room with their child. She also went on the defensive against Dr. Phil himself by saying that he switched some of her interview answers around for the sake of ratings. Wow.
Dr. Phil Puts Michelle In Her Place
After recovering from the shock of having Michelle, who came to him for help, tell Dr. Phil that he was changing answers for ratings, Dr. Phil was quick to inform her that he didn’t exactly need to get her on the show to get ratings. Two, Dr. Phil made sure to tell her that she really doesn’t understand just how traumatizing it must have been for those parents to have their baby taken from them. Finally, Dr. Phil said that he really didn’t think she turned herself into the police out of conscience, but only because she ran out of tactical options.
